in the region. u.s. dealing with north korea, syria, iran. so this is part of the overall effort by the obama administration to continue pushing this refocus or this pivot is the word they like to use to asia. we saw last year, at the end of last year when the president did an asia trip and australia announced that u.s. troops, marines, would be going to that region. that was part of the defense component of this. they also see great benefits both domestically in the u.s. but also in this region. the president has talked about how trade in this region could lead to jobs at home. so these are some of the issues that the president will be addressing, but perhaps first and foremost we'll be talking about the push for democracy across the region and how thailand can play a role in that, victor. >> so myanmar is next. is that a bit controversial? >> reporter: well, it is. i mean this is a big moment because it's first time that a u.s. president has gone to myanmar, also known as burma. it is a country that has been closed until recently. about two years ago we've seen this sort of movement to refo

into the occasion. >> right now iran has its hands full. it's got syria collapsing on one side t has hamas in trouble. so at a very simple, logistical level, this is more demands on iran for resupplying of weapons for political support of various kinds, but there is a broad idealogical game here where iran wins, because iran is seen as the great defender of the palestinians in the middle east these days. this is fastidiously stated. in the political sense, iran is seen as one of the champions of the palestinians. >> will they still be seen as a champion if israel goes debacle and pushes hard against hamas or do they risk losing some of that cache? >> not really. i think everyone understands that israel is one of the most powerful in the middle east by far. it will do what it has to to run gaza. they say to the people of the arab world, we know you're supposed to fear us because we're the shia and you're sunnis and you're arab, but we are the greatest defender of the arab cause, which is the palestinian cause. and it works. go to cairo, to the shops of cairo, and you will see photographs of

an answer, not a critique of how we ask questions. >> there were questions about fiscal cliff, iran, syria, climate change. >> ben gotti. >> and benghazi. >> i thought it was all right. they covered most of the principle stories of the day or week. wi us most struck by the difference in president obama himself. this was a more confident, relaxed, even assertive president or person than we had seen before. and he staked out his position on taxes. and, then, of course, he rolled it back. >> he was impassioned in his defense of susan rice, something we rarely see from the president. >> right. so winning another four years will do that for you. let's contrast with the loser of the election. that's mitt romney. he hasn't given any interviews or offered any positive forward statements. instead he did a conference call with donors and people were able to listen in and romney was quoted at not directly saying that president obama gave gifts to women, gays, and free contraceptives was very popular with young women. is romney really getting beat up by the press because all he has are these comments
, but this all relates to the big picture. and you've been to syria and it's an absolute basket case. >> and it is heartbreaking. you see these middle class -- i talked to one woman who a week ago was living this middle class existence with her husband and a nice home in aleppo and a bomb destroys her house and now her husband goes missing and she's living with her family in a white tent in the middle of nowhere. this is happening day in and day out and i think the turmoil in gaza is a gift of president assad. it's a kind of distraction that he's delighted to have. >> the world in the arab community is paying more attention to 30 people being killed in gaza than 30,000 people being killed muslim on muslim and arab on arab and that's disproportionate. >> the arab spring fallout, what is your take on that? >> i think i would like to go back to allen's point which is exactly right. as you and i talked about three nights ago, egypt could be the clear player in this. morsi's been in power now for four and a half months and it would be very important to watch, is he going to be a brag matt
